PITTSBURGH --- Carlow University men's basketball never backed
down, but wound up on the losing end of a 110-62 contest against
NAIA No. 13-ranked Indiana University Kokomo in a River States
Conference game Tuesday.
The Celtics (0-16, 0-4 RSC) battled hard in a foul-heavy game
that saw each team in double-bonus territory with eight minutes
remaining in the first half.
Carlow put up a few good blocks and came away with several
fast-break points in the half, but the Cougars (14-3, 4-0 RSC) went
on a 15-3 run at the end of the half to take a 61-29 lead into
The Celtics missed a few easy buckets to start the second half,
and Kokomo continued to slowly pull away throughout the remainder
of the game.
Carlow shot an impressive 70 percent from the foul line on the
night, but the Cougars held them to just 26.7 percent from the
field and 15 percent from beyond the arc.
Kokomo scored 58 points in the paint compared to Carlow's 18,
and the Cougars did not allow the Celtics any second-chance points.
Kokomo out-rebounded the Celtics, 56-33.
Each team racked up over 25 fouls, and Kokomo scored 44 points
off the bench to Carlow's 26.
Jenkins Kimber (JR/Philadelphia, Pa.) led
the Carlow offense with 14 points. He was 4 for 9 from the field
and 5 for 7 from the free throw line. Freshman Eugene
Goodwine (Pittsburgh, Pa.) added 10 points in the
Carlow travels to Midway (Ky.) University for a 3 p.m. RSC game
on Jan. 11. Links to live coverage can be found at https://bit.ly/MBB_1920.
